Try to keep positive and do lots of research on how to improve your count. One of the best you can do is become healthy and exercise, to improve blood circulation to the ovaries.

www.fertility.ca is one of my favorites. Lots of good info, explained straight up.

Good luck!
Loving the website!! Thanks for sharing.x

Me too! ; ) thanks girls.. You guys in here are so great.. Figuring all this out on ur own would be so much harder.

Vermeil, can I ask what sort of things u did to improve egg quality?? Apart from the exercise & blood flow thing.

I was seeing a traditional Chinese medicine lady last year- am thinking I might go back. She definitely changed something in my body, AF changed quite dramatically actually.

I'm also thinking of going to the GP & asking if she'll prescribe melatonin for me. The FS I have an appt with 4th Sept seems to put most of her clients on 3mg melatonin at nite to improve egg quality.. But it has to be the proper stuff, that needs a script (well here in Aust it does).

Iím 38, with AMH of 3.4 and AFC of 8.

Iíve fallen pregnant three times naturally, and twice through IVF.

Sadly I miscarried all of them at 4-5 weeks. Itís not explained but could be egg quality.

In our third IVF I only produced one egg so we cancelled it.

In our fourth, we tried with an egg donor, and Iím now 5 weeks pregnant and hoping this one sticks. Itís not what I wanted originally but needs must...

Good luck to you!

BTW my also-38 friend is about to give birth to her first - she tried for a year but got there naturally - so there is hope! I hope my story doesn’t depress you
